Packers. Bears. Prime Time. It doesn't get much better than this.
This Sunday Night, the oldest rivalry in pro football renews with its 187th regular-season game. The Packers, who once trailed the Bears in the all-time rivalry by what seemed an insurmountable number of games, now are just three games behind, with an all-time record of 89-92-6. They'll look to close that gap to just two games this weekend.
With Aaron Rodgers at the helm, they'll have plenty of opportunity to do so. Last year's game at Lambeau saw the Packers' quarterback knocked out early with a broken collarbone. Even without Rodgers, the Packers nearly won thanks to Eddie Lacy's big day. Earlier this season, the Packers won thanks to a blistering offensive pace and timely turnovers from their defense, as neither team punted the football.
Stay tuned tomorrow night to see what happens this time. To get you ready for the game, here are all the nuts and bolts you'll need to get tuned in.
